Happy Friday! Today's Fan Mail Fridays is about taking it all off. :D Our question for today came from one of my blog's long- time readers, Cherry. She asks:
You got one marvelous blog right in there! Anyway, I just wanna say that I've been your longtime reader--been reading your blog since 2011. I don't normally comment as I have just been an avid lurker and onlooker, but this time, I thought of asking you a question.
What are your top 5 makeup removers? For the longest time, I've been using plain soap and water to remove makeup and I want to try makeup removers for a change and to give my regimen a lil' boost. Hope you can reply with your recommendations.
Thank you, more power, and God bless! Please keep on blogging.Cherry
It's so nice to know that you are thoroughly enjoying my blog--thank you so much for being one of the foundations of The Beauty Junkee, along with its other readers, old and new. Yes, I will keep on blogging for as long as these fingers of mine could type! :D
Okay back to your question. I've only tried a couple of makeup removers, and I stopped searching and trying when I've started using Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oils. They're one of the world's greatest, I tell you. (Now you know what's my Top 1!) I still like a few other makeup removers though, and you'll find 'em out below.
5. MAYBELLINE MAKEUP REMOVER (EYE & LIP)
It's good enough for daily use, specifically if you don't wear heavy duty makeup. (e.g. waterproof, long-wearing, long- lasting, 24-hr. makeups) It's very affordable too! It has the right balance of oil and water, which makes it perfect for people with combination skin.
4. ETUDE HOUSE CLEANSING DREAM LIGHT CLEANSING OIL
Back then, when I didn't have the budget for Shu Uemura's Cleansing Oils, I delighted in Etude House's version: It's pretty lightweight, didn't break me out, very affordable, and has a good variety to match a good range of skin types. I say, if you don't have a budget for Shu Uemura but you want something that's pretty close to it in terms of texture and makeup removing powers, check this out!

3. POND'S COLD CREAM
Ah, a timeless classic. This was my first- ever makeup remover! I still have it in my bathroom and find myself using it every now and then just because... :D
2. BIFESTA MAKEUP REMOVER
One of my new and good discoveries. It's perfect for removing persistent lipstick, and its watery formulation makes it good for sensitive skin. I like its freshening properties too.
1. SHU UEMURA CLEANSING OIL
My HG makeup remover. It cleanses dutifully, and I've observed that it has really helped me maintain the beauty of my skin. My favorite is the Fresh Pore Clarifying variant because it helps tame breakouts and tightens up the pores overtime. You know how much I love Shu's cleansing oils? I have two backups! :D
There goes my top 5 makeup removers. I hope you liked this post, Cherry! How about you guys? Please share your favorite makeup removers in the comments section below!
